Blueberry Banana Sour Cream Bread | URBAN BAKES

Blueberry Banana Sour Cream Bread

Also try Chocolate Apple Bread. “Sour cream?  In bread?”  This may have caused your face to cringe and/or further question why add it in or how sour could this bread possibly be?  I can only imagine because this is exactly what I had done when I stumbled across this recipe.  But before you turn your head, I must admit, this bread is by far one of the best breads I have tasted and the best …

Mini Frozen Ice Cream Cheesecakes

Two of America’s favorite desserts are the classic cheesecake and ice cream so why not put the two together?  Makes sense, right?  That’s just what I did for today’s Sundae Sunday; ice cream cheesecake. For someone who’s not a fan of cream cheese or cheesecakes I was surprised at how addicting this creamy concoction was and I just couldn’t get enough.  Luck was by my side when company came …

Easy 5-Step Reese’s Bundt Explosion

I was delighted to see my good college friend, Monica this past Saturday.  It’s not often she and I get together so when we do, we try to make the best of it catching up on oh-so-much-to-tell over mani-pedi’s, dinner and drinks in the city.  Which always leaves me to reminisce our once wild single bar nights at Down the Hatch. Since the start of my …

Madeleines a l’Orange

For as long as I can remember, I’ve been fascinated by just about anything remotely related to France.  From actively learning the language, to attempting escargot (although I’ve been told on many occasions I would be repulsed by its texture and/or flavor and yet I’d still give it a try) and to finally gain the courage to bake several ‘French’ style desserts, my infatuation with this country is indescribable. With the opportunity …

Chocolate Oreo Chunk Ice Cream

Summer is finally here and we sure did get a hell of a welcome with this weekend’s heat.  The start to this brutally hot season means my oven stays closed* until the weather cools down.  In the mean time, I’m attempting no-bake desserts and ice cream!  Now who doesn’t love cold, creamy ice cream?!  Well, I cannot lie.  I’m not the biggest fan …
